We booked our stay at Alta via Alpharooms as it seemed to have the best price and included Breakfast. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist - in fact all the staff we encountered (including the night receptionist at 4am!) were very friendly.
The hotel is very dated and could do with a little bit of sprucing up - if only some new duvet and chair covers! - but for a cheap stay within walking distance of everything you need in Puerto de la Cruz it was fine. We aimed to be out at night at bars and restaurants and were sightseeing during the day so we were only looking for a place to sleep.
The breakfast was as expected for €3 (included in our booking) - some cereals, bread, cheap meat and cheese and horrible juice -but for the price we couldn't complain and there are plenty of options nearby or with the in-room kitchen and local shops and cafes you can always eat out or in-room. They also do a paid for English Breakfast, Sandwiches and meals.
The apartment was large and generally comfortable and clean. Decor was dated and basic but in good repair. One tip on hot water - turn up the boiler to max (in the cupboard over the sink) if you want enough hot water for 2 or more reasonable length showers. The beds were not that comfortable and were quite lumpy they also have sheets instead of duvets. The apartment did not have Air Conditioning which was fine for December but is probably quite hot in the summer! We left the window open but it did get quite noisy once cars and buses started in the morning. Our balcony had good views of La Teide and the sea.
The 2 Sun Terraces and outdoor (non-heated) pool are not very private (next to the bar and on the main walkway into the hotel). Car parking is €5 per day - but only for small cars due to very tight under building parking (we had a VW Polo and it was a bit tight!)
Very short walk to the main sights in the city and the late night bars and clubs. About 10 to 15 minutes to Plaza del Charco (don't eat on the square - head down the side streets such as Cruz Verde) and a further 15-20 minutes to Loro Parque (or get the free train).
If you just want a place to sleep and are not fussy - don't waste your money elsewhere!
